I've not given up the paper arts, just trying different skills at the moment LOL. This is a project from an old Quilting Arts magazine which I've wanted to try for ages. It involves making a background with muslin covered in watered down PVA, tissue paper on top all crumpled and left to dry. I then painted it with Lumiere paints. The pattern was traced on the back and I pinned on the front a layer of kunin felt and 3 layers of gauze and stitched the pattern from the reverse side through all the layers. The fun part was cutting out the pattern shape with the soldering iron and the slow part was stitching on the beads! PS: It wasn't easy to get a good photograph.
